The power forward has been signed to two 10-day contracts, and apparently Dallas liked what they saw.

The Dallas Mavericks have signed rookie power forward Jarrod Uthoff to a multi-year deal according to reports.

A 6-9 product out of the University of Iowa, Uthoff has appeared in two games with the Mavs and totaled five minutes. He has only taken one shot in that time and hasn’t scored but has grabbed one rebound and committed two fouls.

Uthoff signed a 10-day contract with Dallas on March 9 and another one on March 19. Per NBA rules, the Mavs would’ve had to waive him before the expiration of his second 10-day contract or sign him for the rest of the season if he completed it. His second 10-day expired today (March 29).

Even though he has seen limited playing time, the team wants to get a longer look at Uthoff.

Uthoff will finish the season with the team and will probably be on the Mavericks’ Summer League team in Las Vegas come July.
